Wet first pitch, my first E1 but it felt easy, enough gear even though some of it's runout
KittySupreme - Lead O/S - 24/Jun/12 with Max

Sore throat and full of cold but still really enjoyed the climb and managed to finish successfully. Good, fun, enjoyable route, didn't have any worrying moments which made a change! a bit wet at the bottom, not to much gear on the first bit either but improved after the start. Good to get it done with my dad in the sun:)
nicole almond - 2nd O/S - 05/Jun/12 with Dad

Bold and pretty much (effective gear)gearless till you reach the break, although the climbing pretty straight forward.

Don't think there is a single 5b move on the route, the gear is not very convincing though. E1 5a?

Good climbing on great holds, gear pants at start and suspect at end
mynyddresident - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/11 with tony

2 bits of OK gear on initial wall but no gear proper until horizontal break, lower wall felt slightly bold but ultimately steady. A bit of route finding needed on upper sections. Sufficient gear, just, throughout. Clean open climbing, very good indeed.

Really nice climb. Definitely deserves 2 stars. Beautiful rock, perfect crimpy wall climbing, nicely protected, perhaps only lacking a bit in the defined line department.

plaesed with this thouht easy for the grade run out at the start just keep your head. Wax wing is a better combo, takes in the bottom crux and a more sustained top corner superb
